An interesting thing happened to me this weekend: I bought my wife a pair of clearance-priced Paper Denim & Cloth jeans in size 28. (She normally takes a 27, but I figured that 28 was good enough for the price.) The style is 2-MOD RIGID; it's a totally dark, unwashed denim with bright yellow stitching that looks like it will break in very nicely once worn a bit. Anyway, here's the interesting bit: the jeans are several sizes too large on her, but fit me (albeit quite tightly - definitely not as much room in the crotch as I would like). I normally take a 31 in the men's GTO cut. What the heck is up with this? How on earth can I fit into a size 28 anything, let alone women's size 28 jeans?
